Heavyweight contender Jarrell Miller has come out firing in the direction of promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom.
Last year, Miller was scheduled to fight IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua in June at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Before the fight took place, Miller tested positive for several banned performance enhancers and he was pulled from the fight.
Miller was replaced by Andy Ruiz on short notice. And Ruiz pulled off one of the biggest heavyweight upsets in the history of the weight class - when he dropped Joshua four times to secure a seven round stoppage.
Hearn was furious with Miller, explaining to media members that he was personally contacted by Miller, who claimed that he never used any banned substances. But Miller's drug tests, which were administered by VADA, came up positive for GW501516, EPO and HGH.
Miller, who a few months ago signed a co-promotional pact with Top Rank, is annoyed with some of the critical statements made by Hearn during video interviews.
"You have people that have a bigger following than me that are going to put their personal story first. And that's what Eddie did with Matchroom. He was under fire from DAZN for it, so I was their scapegoat," Miller told BonusCodeBets.co.uk.
"Any big business or corporation always find a scapegoat, so why not blame it on the big brash American? Make him look the bad guy and meanwhile he [Eddie] can run for the clear.
"I kept things cordial with Eddie because of DAZN. People from DAZN were messaging me to say: 'keep your head up' and 'stay positive', 'we'd love to see you again'. And then for Eddie Hearn to say the total opposite, it's mixed messages. What Eddie put on camera, he never said that to my face."
